Raul Sanchez Architects designs wooden waves for a dental studio in Barcelona

Winner of the Frame Awards 2020 as healthcare centre of the year, Impress Dental Studio is divided by curvilinear partitions that intersect and amplify the space. 

Designed by Raul Sanchez Architects, Impress Dental Studio in Barcelona is a renovation of an old building in the city centre. Winner of the Frame Awards 2020 as healthcare centre of the year, the project includes ground floor, mezzanine and basement distributed over 80 sqm. In realizing it, the architects moved away from the idea of a traditional clinic made of aseptic environments and added an intersection of wooden partitions ensuring privacy and at the same time arousing curiosity. 

The pine wood structure, placed on the entire height, defines the spaces and increases their depth, with the result of two studies, a reception and an X-ray room. An environment that appears in continuous movement thanks to the curvilinear geometries of the panels, and in dialogue with the outside through the facade: here diagonal bands alternate transparencies and opacities, letting you glimpse from the street the warm tones of the wood, the red metal cladding, the ceramic floor.
